We're past the cliff now - sort of dangling over it. In a moment, a song to Congress...
((( BREAK )))
( Osgood on Keyboard )
Call them irresponsible.
Isn't it demonstrable?
Throw in great self-righteousness, too.
Do their foolish alibis bore you?
Well, it doesn't matter -
they'll just ignore you.
It's all so political -
and so hypocritical.
Nothing they have to say seems true.
Their motives, we've long suspected,
are getting re-elected
to those seats where they've sat.
And they're very good at that.
In no mood concessional,
might just buy us a moon of blue.
As what we're entitled to,
someone will have to pay -
maybe your kids and mine someday.
Call that indefensible -
Maybe they're in the mode
to kick the can down the road.
That's what is being said,
so watch out for that road ahead.
